ETA: So the IOS app (dunno why its not available on Android), which is this app that has a mini-game that lets you raise your galaxy at war and has the codex in it and a few other things, also has a system where you get e-mails from squadmates after certain events in the game (ex. Tali sends you one complaining about her hangover). Check out the one you get after you beat the game.
Now there is evidence that these sometimes come out of order, so its possible this is meant to be sent by the VS when they're in the hospital near the beginning, but that wording sure doesn't suggest it. And apparently people only have gotten it after beating the game; never beforehand.
Well Michael Caine circa 1975, but yeah. Check out 6:45 here.
Soldier, as always; and yeah, it hasn't been nearly as bad as I thought. Granted I imported by ME3 Shepard, so I started level 57 and have all the guns, mods, armors, and credits that I had ended the game with, and now have the ability to upgrade guns to level 10; so all that makes it easier. Still early goings though.
